7:03am
mauera is in oklahoma this morning. >> good morning, ann. the midwest is right smack in the middle of this heat wave with the humidity that will feel like 105 today in st. louis. now almost half the country is feeling the heat, advisories in place from texas to connecticut. it's the summer sizzler that just won't stop. >> it's been horrible. horrible. >> reporter: dallas facing its tenth straight day of 100-degree temperatures. >> look at the numbers. right up into the triple digits as we head into the afternoon. >> reporter: oklahoma city stuck on broil for almost two straight weeks. >> i carry a container of juice and a container of water frozen from the house every day when i leave so i can stay hydrated until i get back home. >> reporter: and now the east coast is bracing itself from georgia to connecticut. heat advisories have been issued for temperatures today that will feel as high as 105.
7:04am
in milwaukee, several runners are just getting out of the hospital after suffering heat-related illnesses during a half marathon sunday. >> people were falling down on that bridge. i had to stop in the middle of it to help someone who collapsed. >> reporter: in arkansas, it hit 102. many lined outside a nonprofit agency to apply for help with their electricity bills. a desperate effort to stay cool with no end to the heat in sight. now, emergency workers are asking people who don't have air-conditioning to leave their homes and go to a cool place. and they are reminding you, please don't forget your pets at home because they're vulnerable for heat stroke, too.
7:05am
>> thank you so much. it's a good time to look after your neighbors. >> people are asking, how hot will it get where i live and how long will it last? al roker is up stairs with the answers. >> matt, half the country, 24 states are under heat advisorie states are under heat advisories or heat warnings for at least the next 24 hours. stretching from texas all of the way into the northeast and parts of new england. in fact, in some areas you can see, look at these temperatures. 101 in oklahoma. air temperature, 100 in columbus. 99 in d.c. 96 in new york city. add the humidity, that's the problem. a lot of warm moist air coming in. 115 in huntsville. 107 in d.c. 103 here in new york city. here's why. big area of high pres keeping that jet stream way up to the north. this is just a heat pump that will continue. and the bad news is, this goes into at least thursday. in fact, jet stream guns up a little further into canada so that heat will be creeping up north as the ridge intensifies.
7:06am
we don't see this breaking down at least until the weekend. so the mid section of the country is going to continue to bake the northeast gets a little bit of a break as we head on into the next 72 hours. ann? >> all right, al, thank you so much. we'll get the rest of your forecast in a bit. for now, to britain's deepening phone hacking scandal. this morning there are claims that journalists from other rupert murdoch owned newspapers were involve and the alleged target is former p.m. gordon brown. stephanie goss is in london with this. stephanie, good morning. >> good morning, ann. gordon brown does not mince his words when he spoke to the bbc this morning about rupert murdoch's papers. he said those papers used people to gather information on, his words, known criminals. the allegations appearing in the british press over the last 24 hours claiming that brown's personal information has been relentlessly pursued for the last decade. a scandal that started with just one of rupert murdoch's tabloids
7:07am
is spreading. now two more of the media mogae mogul's newspapers "the sun" and "the sunday time" are being accused of unethical reporting. an adviser to gordon brown said in 2006, the editor on "the sun" paper and "news of the world" contacted the browns saying that the paper knew that their newborn son had cystic fibrosis and it was going to print the story. gordon brown spoke today with the bbc. >> in tears. your son is now going to be broadcast across the media. sarah and i were incredibly upset about it. we're thinking about his long-term future, thinking at our family. >> reporter: at the time only a small group of doctors knew the diagnosis and the browns themselves had only just been told. >> they didn't know how rebecca
7:08am
came across this information and now that it's come to light, it was obtained by what appeared to be illegal matters. >> reporter: "the guardian" reports that brown's financially details was also obtained illegally by "the sunday times." one of murdoch's most highly rega regarded publications. a lawyer from brown's bank sent a memo to the paper in january 2000. someone from the "sunday times" or acting on its behalf has masqueraded as mr. brown for the purpose of obtaining information. news international manages its british papers, says it is aware of the new allegations involving gordon brown and the company is asking for all relevant information so that they can conduct their own investigation. they did not comment on the latest allegations involving the news of the world and the royal family. the bbc reports that members of the royal family security team sold phone details to the paper. and that charles' and camilla's phone cells were among those hacked by reporters. "the sun" paper says it is
7:09am
confident in the methods it used to obtain gordon brown's sons medical records. even so, scotland yard is investigating all of the accusations and is casting a wide net. pop singer george michael says he's being called in for questioning after a number of tweets he posted about rebecca brooks. he said in one of them that she told him that almost all of their information comes directly from police. in a later tweet he said that police received, quote, a nice little wad of cash for the service. ann? >> this story just keeps on growing. thank you so much. 7:09. here's matt. >> ann, thanks very much. now to washington and the heat that president obama and congressional leaders are under to reach a deal on slashing the budget deficit. nbc's kristen welker is at the white house with the latest on this. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. good to see you, too. president obama will meet with congressional leaders again today. the two sides still very much deadlocked. and the clock is ticking.
7:10am
>> thank you very much. >> reporter: with the deadline looming, president obama and congressional leaders met monday for a third time but they're still struggling to find common ground on the debt ceiling. >> this is the same shot you had yesterday except we're wearing ties today. >> reporter: those familiar with monday's talk, republicans and democrats, seemed to be gaining no ground, agreeing to only about $1.5 trillion in cuts to things like defense spending, medicare, medicaid. but that's far short of the estimated $2.4 trillion needed to get a deal done past 20 12, and the president says he won't go for anything less. >> i will not sign a 30-day or a 60-day or a 90-day extension. >> reporter: and mr. obama ramped up pressure on republicans to agree to the largest deal possible. speaker boehner said he wants that, too. >> i want to do what i think is in the right -- the best interest of the country. but it takes two to tango. >> reporter: the president called on democrats to take on
7:11am
their so-called sacred cows, namely entitlements like social security. and he called on republicans to agree to an increase in tax revenues, which mr. obama insisted would only impact the wealthiest americans and would not take effect until 2013. >> i'm prepared to take on significant heat from my party to get something done. and i expect the other side should be willing to do the same thing. >> reporter: but speaker boehner made it clear, he won't budge on taxes. >> the american people will not accept and the house cannot pass a bill that raises taxes on job creators. >> reporter: and earlier in the day on the laura ingram radio show the speaker alluded to the elephant in the room. >> the president is in re-election mode, and as a result, that's where a lot of this rhetoric comes from. i told the president and i asked him, mr. president, let's forget about the next election, you forget about yours and i'll forget about mine and let's get serious about doing the right thing for the country.
7:12am
>> it's not going to get easier, it's going get harder. so we might as well do it now. pull off the band-aid. eat our peas. >> reporter: sources close to negotiation say the goal today is for congressional leaders to identify at least a trillion dollars more of debt reduction over the next decade. that meeting will take place late this afternoon. matt? >> kristen welker at the white house. laura ingram is a conservative talk show host and fox news contributor. her latest book is called "of thee i zing." nice to see you. this seems like the case of the debt ceiling the case of the immovable object and unstoppable force. when it comes to taxes, this issue of revenues, is there any way this deal gets done without the republicans compromising somewhat on taxes. >> i certainly hope not because the one thing we do know, matt, and look at the whole landscape,
7:13am
if the republicans hadn't taken the house of representatives last november, we wouldn't even be having a discussion on any spending cuts. the democrats would have already voted to increase the debt ceiling. spending cuts would not be part of the equation. the only reason we're talking about shrinking the size of government, beyond all of these other details, is because the republicans are listening to the people out there in this country and you're angry. these people are angry. >> president obama talked about shared sacrifice. where is the shared sacrifice going to come from on the republican side? >> the shared sacrifice the fact that he canceled his montana vacation? >> he's opening a lot of entitlement programs up. he's doing things he just said to take heat from the democrats on. >> the president was dancing around using the word tax increases. the numbers don't add up. taxing the upper 1% or 2% income earners in this country does not get us to the mat. we have to shrink government. putting more burden on people who create jobs. hey, like nbc. we don't need to do that.
7:14am
>> everybody agrees there has to be changes on that side. >> when washington -- matt, when washington starts sacrifices instead of actually increasing the salaries of individuals within the executive offices of the presidency, when they start sacrificing, we can talk about the real meaning of sacrificing of american people. >> poll says 20% of americans think that spending cuts are the only thing that should be on a table when they're talking about be this they're talking about increasing revenue, they're talking about raising taxes on the 1%, on the corporations, even the corporate jet, which is a few million dollars. >> that was a scam and a lie. the fact that media allowed him to get away with that is absurd. the american people watching this today, they can't control. we -- what happens in washington, obama is going to come out and, you know, do his rhetoric and boehner is going to do the same thing. in the end the two parties have different visions. growing this economy is not -- has not been done, matt, stimulus bill or health care. >> with this deal, absolutely
7:15am
not, will there be no compromise on taxes on the republican side, in your opinion? >> will there be compromise on the other side on the issue of freeing up business to create jobs. that's where we are. that's the divide. >> this is going to be remembered in 2012 in the campaign. >> i hope so. >> which side has the most to lose if this deal goes south. >> who has been the adult in the room? obama comes out, we've got to eat our peas yesterday. excuse me, isn't it your budget that was voted down 97-0 by your own party. we know what he wants to do with our economy. >> you think the democrats are going to take the hit on this. >> the democrats are in big trouble. >> while we're on the subject of 2012, recent iowa poll has michele bachmann pulling ahead of romney by 4 percentage points. is she the candidate to beat right now on the republican side and, more importantly, why? >> i think she's resonating because she's a little different from the other candidates. congresswoman but she's a mom, she talks about issues beyond the economy, talks about the
7:16am
culture and not to segue to my book rudely, but i'm talking about other issues too. i'm a mother. okay? all of this political stuff it happens every four years. we vote for the presidency. we go to the voting booth. we can really affect the culture that's going on around us. a lot more so than we can affect the ceiling debate in washington or whether bachman is going to take out paul lentity. >> you have serious concerns about the culture and you use humor in the book to pinpoint some of these things. >> it's a cultural takedown. >> everything from muffin tops. am i the only man in america or person in this room that doesn't know what a muffin top was? >> apparently. everybody in the green room did. it's a cultural intervention. in this summer i think as tim geithner said yesterday, it's going to be a long, painful time for america. put that on bumper sticker. we've got to laugh. i think when we look around us, as i was on the train, may i tell you since you have three small children as i have, on the train two weeks ago my daughter and i coming up to new york, a
7:17am
man was watching full-blown porn. two rows up from us, we go to the snack car. my mom and my daughter says, mommy, why are those people swimming with no clothes on on that screen? and i'm like how did we go to a situation where that's acceptable? snakes on a plane, porn on a train, lunatic. >> you're not optimistic? >> i am because i'm in mom groups and i'm -- mom stuff all the time. and women across political lines are saying, we've got to do better. we have to do better. >> men, too. >> but, matt, did you really watch rihanna and brittney together on stage in that lip lock? this is an intervention with you. 11 times? did you say that on the "today" show on may 22nd? >> it was a joke. >> okay. it was a joke. >> similar to what you write in your book, some of this is humor. >> do you know what cee lo green's number one hit? >> i know the song.
7:18am
>> blank you. >> is that the way you want to end this by saying blank you? >> no, not you. >> is that the way we're going to do this? >> no. if i lit up a cigarette right now, what would happen if i did this? >> the alarms would go up and throw a a bucket of water on you. >> but we've agreed that this is not good. we've agreed that on television probably not a good thing to show that to the kids. all i'm saying is, love you guys, all i'm saying is, we can bring it up. tony bennett, love it. awesome. you have some great people booked. but we can do better than enrique ingesias. tonight i'm not trucking you, tonight i'm blanking you. >> i'm not going to say that on this show. >> august 19th. >> first of all, thank you for going to the website and checking out our summer concert series. >> i did. >> we've got a great app for your ipad too. >> do you? i'm sad i missed snl. may 27th, i watched it. >> the book is called "of thee i zing."
7:19am
>> excerpt on the website. >> on ours. absolutely. next, the top stories from natalie morales. >> good morning to you, matt. good morning, everyone. afghan president hamid karzai is mourning his brother after he was assassinated by one of his body guards at his kandahar home. nbc joins us now from kabul. atia,good day to you. >> reporter: good day, natalie. he referred to as awk was the younger half brother of president karzai. he was an infamous and influential power broker down south, sometimes accused of being a part of the narcotics industry, but what was widely known was how the u.s. and nato forces relied upon him to talk to tribal leaders as well as the local taliban to bring them to the negotiating table. but in the end it was the taliban who have claimed responsibility for his death. natalie? >> thanks so much, atia. u.s. relations with pakistan are getting icier as drone attacks are intensifying
7:20am

7:21am

7:22am
locally heavy downpours and the risk of showers and thunderstorms down through the southeast on into florida. plenty of sunshine here in the northeast although there may be a few showers in the extreme northern parts of new england. >> and that's your latest here's what's happening in your neck of the woods. >> our neck of the woods, though hard to see, it's going to be beautiful today. we will have the weather that is the envy of the nation as we head through the next couple of days. talking about on the "today" show most of the nation right now suffering from extreme heat. for us, significant cooldown continues. 63 degrees at 4:00 in the city, elsewhere i'm going to 70, even cooler than yesterday. and as we continue through the weekend, temperatures stay below their seasonal average. >> and that's your lat >> and that's your latest weather. ann? >> al, thank you so much. just ahead, should the 6-year-old daughter of reali television producer bruce beresford-redman be allowed to testify to a key hearing tied to her mother's brutal murder.

7:31am
husband try to treat homosexuality. the controversy being generated by an undercover video. we'll get to that and the backlash over a recent kickboxing match. two girls, one 8, one 7, recently faced off in front of paying audience. one of those girls admitted that she was scared and even cried during the fight. why did her father allow his daughters to take part in such a violent sport? we're going to find out. and also, how about this for a story? one beauty queen's incredible transformation. at 17 she weighed more than 230 pounds. now just a few years later she is the reining miss south carolina. she's got her eyes on the miss america title. she will be here to tell us exactly how she did it. >> a lot to smile about. but let's begin this morning this half hour with new details about a hollywood producer accused of killing his wife in mexico. extradition hearing is scheduled for today. we've got nbc in los angeles
7:32am
with this story. miguel, good morning. >> good morning. bruce beresford-redman has been in jail since november awaiting whether or not he will be extradited back to mexico on charges he murdered his wife there. now his lawyers believe his 6-year-old daughter could help clear the hollywood producer's name. on april 8th, 2010, police in cancun, mexico, found monica's naked body floating in the hotel sewer. she was strangled to death, murdered by her husband of 11 years, bruce beresford-redman. the hollywood producer was questioned in mexico but wasn't charged with murder until after he returned home to los angeles. >> it is a rush to judgment. >> reporter: his lawyer says beresford-redman is independent and at today's extradition hearing wants to call the couple's 6-year-old daughter to testify. the couple and their two children stayed in one hotel room during their vacation where
7:33am
prosecutors say the murder took place. according to court documents filed by the attorney for beresford-redman the 6-year-old says she never saw her father hit her mother. she also states that her father got cuts and scratches on his face and body from a trip to a rocky river and that loud yelling coming from their hotel room the night of the murder was a family playing a game, not a homicide. >> the daughter was there. she did not report anything like that happening. that certainly would have been something a child would have known. >> reporter: but the mexican government and u.s. prosecutors call their evidence overwhelming. they say a cheetding husband had the motive to kill his wife when she threatened to leave him. investigators say the couple fought publicly in front of witnesses including hotel workers, that yelling from the room was, in fact, screams for help and key card records showed someone went in and out of their room several times over night when police discovered monica's body was dumped in the sewer. >> it's traumatic.
7:34am
it's tragic. it's really tragic. >> reporter: in a statement the victim's sister called the attempt to have their 6-year-old niece testify, quote, shameless. one legal analyst predicts the judge will reject the testimony. >> i think the chances of her testifying are slim to none because this is a hearing that is going to be conducted for the purposes of extradition and not a mini-trial. >> reporter: a murder in mexico, a husband charged with killing his wife, and now the suspect and victim's 6-year-old daughter asked to testify. the defense also argues that mexico is plagued by corruption, that their client could never get a fair trial there and the prosecution has put together a sloppy circumstantial case. the judge could make her decision on extradition as early as this afternoon. ann? >> all right, miguel this morning, thanks. star jones is a former prosecutor and veteran legal commentator. savannah guthrie is "today's" legal correspondent. good morning. >> good morning. >> it's hard to imagine a
7:35am
6-year-old child being called to testify. can it happen? >> actually i have called children to testify. i had a murder case in brooklyn when i was in the homicide division and all of my witnesses were kids under 12 years old. one of them was a 7-year-old, as a matter of fact. the only question is to whether or not the child is swearable, meaning understands the difference between the truth and a lie and the ramification. how far, in an extradition hearing, the defense -- the fugitive, if you will, does not have a right to call witnesses. so we don't even know if she'll get to the stand. >> so the real question then is what will the point be that the judge will make his decision on? >> yes. >> and but how much does how crucial the defense sees her testimony because clearly as we just saw, the defense said it's crucial. how much does that play in his decision? >> it's not a trial. it's not meant to be a mini-trial other wise that would
7:36am
defeat the whole purpose of having a treaty with mexico saying if a crime happens there we send the defendant there. actually the defendant is not entitled to call witnesses. there's no legal impediment to this child testifying but there may be an issue of relevance. the only issue for this judge to decide is whether there's probable cause and actually you can't even really offer evidence, the defendant has no right to offer evidence at this kind of hearing. the only thing he can offer is explanatory evidence. he may think that the child can explain away some of this testimony, some of the evidence that the mexican prosecutor sent. but the judge could ultimately decide this proceeding is too narrow. >> is it too much to hope the judge would take into the account the psychological implications on this child given she's the child of these two people? >> actually the investigators have never spoken to the child, only the child's therapist in dealing with the impact of the child's mother's death on the baby. so if you think about it, we don't even know what she would say. most judges would say if they're
7:37am
going to allow this it would be an in-camera interview. they would not want to put her in court. >> if the child is permitted to testify it will not be in open court but back in the judge's chambers. the prosecutors argued there's no need to call this child. we're take on faith the declarations, the legal papers that have been nild that describe what the child's testimony would be. prosecutors have said don't call her. we can just argue about -- we'll assume it's true and argue about whether it's relevant. >> almost a stipulation for all practical purposes saying, okay, even if she says what she says, this is absolutely nothing to do on the ultimate issue of extradition. we don't want to be in the position as the united states of not giving back someone who is accuse of murder in mexico because guarantee, you next week, there will be somebody over in mexico that we're going to want to get back. >> who has the burden of proof there? does this play in this kind of a case, in an extradition case? does the defense or the prosecution that has a greater
7:38am

bit obsessed. even if you eat right and exercise more, there's no golden ticket to your golden years. >> people of our age, when we wake up in the morning and nothing hurts, we know we're dead. >> reporter: writer turned 100 this past may. she still goes dancing every week. >> i am too busy to grow old. >> reporter: ann believes the key to her longevity is simple. >> curiosity about the outside world and love for my children, for the people close to me. love is very important. i can't imagine people living without loving someone. >> reporter: it turns out her outlook may be what's keeping her alive. it's estimated as little as 30% of aging is genetically based. the world's longest living person lived to 122. she was known as much for her age as her joy of life. >> images that a lot of us carry
8:21am
about aging are unduly negative and harmful to us. they actually found that the type of belief system that a person has about aging has more impact on their health as they get older. >> reporter: that's not to say a healthy lifestyle srnt important. the japanese of okinawa have some of the lowest mortality rates in the world, and their success is largely attributed to a nutrient rich diet and physical activity. still, mindset seems to play an important role. researchers from the longevity project, the longest running age study, recently concluded that stable relationships and clear-sighted goals are two of the most important factors. filmmaker mark wexler became interested in aging after his mother passed away. >> is this it? am i passed my prime? >> reporter: he spent three years traveling the world for his documentary "how to live forever," interviewing characters like buster martin, he ran marathons and claimed to
8:22am
be 101. >> i'm not like you people, normal. i've seen that. >> reporter: as for bell, the next dance is just one step toward i'mmortality. >> you've got the stay alive if it kills you. >> what does it really take to live to 100? mark wexler joins us now along with leslie martin. good morning to both of you. nice to see you. we're going to deal the physical on this tomorrow so we'll stick with the psychological this morning. is there any real hard evidence that a positive attitude makes us live longer? >> well, there's really not from the longevity project. we studied 1500 plus people over most of their lifespans. 80 plus years. and oftentimes being happy does go along with living a long life but it's not that thinking happy thoughts or being happy is what makes it happen. it's the great thanks you do with your life. >> when you look at the study,
8:23am
what is really jumping out at you? >> one thing is to be persistent. i mean, find what you want in life and really go for it. work hard at your goals. some of the longest life people worked hard, some were stressed out by their jobs. but they cared about what they did. they felt it was important. >> they worked hard so they were mentally engaged. they stayed active. >> absolutely. >> when you went around the world meeting all these people was there a common denominator? >> humorous, very comfortable in their own skin. they were kind of serene and also i went to okinawa and in okinawa they have a thing which is a reason to get up in the morning, a purpose. i think everyone across the border, all around the world, should have a purpose. i think we kind of lose that sometimes. here people retire in america and other places. they lose their purpose. in japan there's not even a word for retirement. >> right. when you go back, leslie, to this clear-sighted goals, in other words, if you've always got something else you want to accomplish, in some ways if you
8:24am
have no goals you become stagnant. >> absolutely. and people who lived a long time in the longevity project they really did have things that they cared about. and oftentimes this was their work, they had hobbies and activities that they loved to do. they had strong social connections. to friends and family and colleagues and co-workers, and austin was very involved in helping other people. >> you talk about worry and stress. one of the things that comes out of the are search is worry in moderation makes you live longer. and what you're trying to say is not worry to excess. >> absolutely not. you don't want to worry herself and go crazy. but some amount of worrying actually good. you think ahead. you've got a plan b. it shows that you're really engaged in your own life and your own outcome. >> when i heard that, from your study, i was pleased. i'm a huge worrier. >> me, too. >> i worry that i'm worried too much. when i heard that, all is good. >> but it's worry in moderation. >> yeah.
8:25am
>> everybody worries about something. what about personal relationships? when you went around and talked to these people, did they all have very strong interpersonal relationships? >> they did. >> even the guy who says he's not normal? >> they have personal relationships but also a lot of their spouses had passed away because they outlived them and that was a sad point. but just a zest for life, i think, basically. >> sense of humor, how big a role? >> i think it's hoounlg. >> well, i think it makes you enjoy your life. what we found in the longevity project is a sense of humor and being optimistic wasn't helpful. it seemed to shave the way people few risks. they took more risks, more likely to be smokers and drinkers and have more risky hobbies. again, you can have too much of a good thing. >> did you meet any really grumpy old people? we highlight all the happy old people. there's got to be some grumps out there. >> i think buster, marathon runner. >> i hope he doesn't watch this

111 in columbia. here is the bad news. big area of high pressure, this upper level high pressure ridge keeps the jet stream to the north so that keeps the heat and humidity in today and we move into thursday, the jet stream is even further north and so that heat will continue to creep north as that ridge gets stronger and bigger. it's that ridge of high pressure that kept us nice and hot last week as it continues to make for very, very hot weather across the second half of the state. we are seeing quite a cool down. continues through today. our temperatures are only going to climb into the 70s in the warmest spots. 76 degrees in san jose. 63 in san francisco. and 66 degrees in oakland. we continue to drop off in temperatures as we head through tomorrow. 78 degrees on thursday. 80s return friday into the weekend. are not maintained so
9:08am
basically you sweat a lot and you're not drinking enough water to compensate for it. a lot of people think that thirst is the first sign of dehydration but that's the last sign. the first symptom is fatigue. then you get a little irritable. you get a little dry mouth. and then eventually you finally feel thirsty so if you wait until you're thirsty it's too late. when we talk about dehydration and people talk about different kinds of fluids, obviously the number one is water. yes. absolutely. but does it matter what kind of fluid you're using? it does. first off you want to -- water is the best.
9:09am
sports drinks which can give you some electroliytes are next. watermelon and cucumbers. you want to avoid alcohol and caffeine because they cause make you urinate out some of that fluid you want to hold on to. all of these heat-related issues we're going to talk about all begin with dehydration. that's right. next one, heat exhaustion as we move up the scale. exactly. heat exhaustion is your body's response to the dehydration and your body temperature starts to rise. so what happens at this point is that your body starts to become light headed. you feel nauseous. you get headache. you can still sweat to compensate so your skin still stays moist but it becomes cool and pale at this point. evaporation is the body's own air conditioner in a sense. yes. when it's this humid and the humidity level is very close to the same humidity level as your
9:10am
skin your evaporation becomes much less efficient so your sweating doesn't help as much. that's correct. you're no longer evaporating sweat off your skin. it just sits on the skin and doesn't pull you down. that is the way fans can help you stay cooler. they help the sweat evaporate. heat exhaustion treatments, what do you do? it can be managed at home. you just want to get the person into a cool setting into an air conditioned room or even a cool shower. give them cold beverages. that will usually take care of it. now the most severe, heat stroke. when, which is a life threatening emergency. people should call 911 if they suspect heat stroke. if somebody, you think somebody is suffering from heat stroke what can you do for them until medical professionals get there? if you suspect they're suffering it what you're going to see is that the person is becoming more confused, getting lethargic. they can't sweat anymore so their skin is getting dry. you no longer have the moisture. it gets really hot and at that point it is an emergency. you want to take their clothing off. get ice packs into their arm pits.
9:11am
start pouring cold fluids on to their skin. who is more susceptible? what part of our population is most susceptible to these issues? well, the elderly are the most susceptible so if you have parents at home alone please keep an eye on them and call them regularly to make sure they're okay. also the next biggest threat is people who are exercising outdoors and not taking in enough fluids. and when we talk about fluid, how much -- i'm asking, generally, how much is enough fluid for you to be taking in if you're outside in this kind of weather? it's going to vary on how much you sweat but on average we lose ten cups of water per day on a hot day so you want to take in at least eight to ten cups per day. minimum. at least. at least. all right. dr. peterson, thanks so much. great advice. we'll need it over the next few days. still to come, if you're trying to motivate yourself to get to the gym we got creative ideas for you in our diet s.o.s. but up next bargains just for you, i mean you, on everything from vacations tote dresses.

this morning on joy's diet sos, answers to your diet dilemmas. "today's" nutritionist joy bauer is here from motivating yourself to a workout to the best cereal. let's get to the first question. cindy in vermont. she's live with us via skype. hi, cindy, what's your question? >> hi, good morning. i'm no longer working out at a gym and i need to know how to get motivated when i'm at home by myself. >> yeah, we all have that problem. >> good question. so, cindy, money tends to be the ultimate motivator. so i'm going to set you up with a system that i call burn it to earn it. you're going to go to the bank. you're going to take out $100 and you're going to loan it to either your mom or a super close friend or a trustworthy co-worker for one month. and every time you exercise they're going to have to pay you back $5. so it's going to take you 20
9:38am
sessions of exercise during that month to earn back your full $100. now, at the end of the month if there's a balance left, whoever is holding your money gets to keep the rest of the money or donate it to charity. and you can fiddle around with the details, but if you follow this system, i bet you're going to whip your body into shape in no time. >> all right. >> thank you. >> good luck to you. all right. our next question is michelle. she's on the phone this morning in connecticut. hi, michelle. what's your question? >> hi. i had a question regarding coconut oil. i had always thought that coconut oil wasn't good for you but i read recently that coconut oil is good for you and should be used instead of olive oil in recipes that require heating the oil. is this true? >> no, it's not true. now, olive oil is 100% good for you and it's perfectly fine to heat olive oil. coconut oil gets more complicated. it's more than 90% saturated fat. as you probably heard, saturated
9:39am
fat rise up the cholesterol and may in fact increase your risk for heart disease. the issue is all saturated fats are not created equal and the type in coconull oil we're finding may be good for you because i'll elevates the good cholesterol. my advice until we know definitively that coconut oil is perfectly fine, use small amounts of coconut oil but really use olive oil and canola oil in most of your recipes. whether you're cooking or baking. >> michelle, good luck. our last is from an e-mail. she writes, i try to get my kids out the door in the morning with a healthy breakfast. what is more important in picking a breakfast cereal, choosing one that's low in sugar or high in fiber? >> both. there are so many kid-friendly tested and approved mainstream cereals. when it comes to healthy cereals, know the first ingredient has to be a whole grain. second, you want at least three grams of fiber per serving. and third, no more than eight
9:40am
grams of sugar. i'm showing here these are four mainstream brands that you can get just about anywhere. and i have a huge list. i'm going to put it out on my facebook and twitter later after the show is over and everybody can check it out. there's a lot of them. >> a lot of them that work. you can't put sugar on top? >> no. >> not that i've ever done that. joy bauer, thanks so much, coming up next, the dyi makeover for your summer wardrobe. we'll show you easy and inexpensive ideas right after this. [ female announcer ] it follows you wherever you go. it's a cloud of depression. and although you've been on an antidepressant for at least six weeks, you're frustrated that your depressive symptoms are still with you. seroquel xr, when added to an antidepressant, is approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder. for many, taking seroquel xr with an antidepressant was proven more effective than an antidepressant alone for treating unresolved symptoms of depression. talk to your doctor about seroquel xr.
9:41am
then visit seroquelxr.com for a free trial offer. call your doctor if you have unusual changes in mood, behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children,teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients taking seroquel xr have an increased risk of death. call your doctor if you have fever, stiff muscles, and confusion, as these may be signs of a life-threatening reaction or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements, as these could become permanent. high blood sugar has been reported with seroquel xr and medicines like it and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death. your doctor should check for cataracts. other risks include decreases in white blood cells, which can be fatal, seizures, increased cholesterol, weight gain, dizziness on standing, drowsiness,impaired judgment, and trouble swallowing. use caution before driving or operating machinery. for more help putting distance between you and your depression, ask your doctor about adding seroquel xr. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.

i'm a peanut butter fanatic. if you add chocolate to it, done. >> chunky if you want it. >> exactly. a little bit of chocolate there. >> i don't think these are big enough. >> big fat plump yummy marshmallows. then you take it and wrap it all up just like a little package. and then while everything is grilling, whether you have your meat, corn, chicken, whatever, pop that on there. >> last night i dreamt i was eating a 100-pound marshmallow. when i woke up my pillow was gone. >> okay. all right. we'll talk about that after this segment. that sounds like a problem will tl. what do you have here? gooey. >> look at that. >> that is so yummy. >> that is a mess waiting to happen. i like it. i love it, too. >> next one is, strawberries. a little bit of powdered sugar, roll it, sprinkle it on. right on the grill. what this does is really adds a little bit of caramelization to the strawberries. you can get a little bit naturally, you can do even a
9:54am
little bit of honey if you didn't want the sugar. that's totally fine. but i like to add a little bit to get this -- you can see. it adds this caramelization. >> what are you grilling here? >> short cake here or pound cake. you can do either one. absolutely. and then what i do is just stick the skewers right on top here. do it like that. and then spoon on a little bit of whipped cream. i mean, you know, why not. go for it. but, you know, it is a little bit -- obviously a little bit healthier than this. strawberries, a little bit of fruit. you can do pound cake with a pile of berrys on top and whipped cream. >> and then a sandwich. >> i have a sandwich. this, is i mean, this is nutella, banana, do i need to say more? >> i don't think so. i don't think so. in fact, you don't have to say anything because natalie is here. did you become unstuck. >> i did. i did. i still have a little glue stuck. >> these you can eat. these are fantastic. again, the brioche has butter in

10:03am
unfortunate title. and people didn't go to see it. >> i don't know if it was because of the title or something else. or they just, you know, don't like him any more. just had it with him and don't want to support his movies. >> i'll be curious if people go. do you think they'll -- >> i think there will be always be the curiosity-seekers. people who want to know. >> plus, it's a year from now when a lot of it will have died down. >> these things take at least a year. you know who i'm hoping we're going to see when we're in montreal? my friend, army hammer. drew's son, army hammer is prince charming in the new movie where julia roberts is playing the queen. and you know who is playing snow white? lilly, lilly collins, phil collins' daughter. she's a lovely actress. they're up there filming right now. >> here's something fun. there was a sergeant based in afghanistan and all he wanted to
10:04am
do was ask mila kunis to go with him to the marine corps ball in november. >> where is that held, washington? huh? >> they're having a poker game over there or something. >> he said where it was. anyway, the deal is that he asked her on a youtube video. and i think we have a little bit of that. >> sergeant moore, he want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the marine corpse ball on november 18th in greenville, north carolina, with yours truly. so, take a second, think about it. get back to me. all right. bye now. >> she thought about it and with justin timberlake's encouragement, she said yes. because she and justin are doing that movie. >> and they were being interviewed together. he sort of put her on the spot. but it sounded like she was all for it. do it for your country. >> i think it's very sweet. she said she has no time right now for romance. she's on the set from like 4:00 in the morning. but it's very sweet of her to take time out to do that.
10:05am
>> we have a host of popsicles on the set and there's a reason for that. >> what is the reason? >> here's the reason -- if you've ever had the ice cream truck come in your neighborhood, the sound of those bells does something to people. now, let me tell you what it does to me. i remember this distinctly when we lived in morgantown west virginia. when i heard that sound, my parents were driving us up the street out of a moving vehicle i opened the door because i heard it and started -- it was without thinking. no, because that sound just evokes all that -- stuff. >> this is a lovely little sound. but apparently there's this ice cream truck operator in massachusetts, who has been fined because his music is blairing away. it's not colbie's music, or we wouldn't mind it. >> he was fined $100. >> here's the thing -- >> any of the sounds are good. >> no, they're not. >> i like it. >> no.
10:06am
when i was growing up, my family lived right behind bellaire junior high school, right? directly behind. and when the nice weather came, the guy would come and he would park his thing right on our driveway. the kids would come out of school, smoke their cigarettes, leave all their trash there and the music is blairing and my mother and father asked very nicely if he would please not do that. no, no. so my daddy, the smartest man i know. turned on our sprinkler system right around that time every day. he tried to do it nicely. but nobody has got the right to get on your property and destroy stuff and trash it. it's wrong. well now i don't care how much you like that sound. >> so there was a family that noticed that people were showing up at their house with campers and picnic gear and stuff like that. just lining up outside their house. and they're like, what are all of these people doing, coming to our home with picnic baskets apparently on google maps, their
10:07am
house shows up as a park entrance. >> can you imagine? >> go down this road, on the way to the park. >> so anyway they would show up -- can you imagine if you saw these campers, we got our barbeque and then it's their house. so they put up a sign saying it's not a park, please go away. >> google is apparently trying to do something about it for them. there's this couple, speaking of where people live, there's this couple that got married. they said, we'll get married, but we're not going do live together. they're in their late 50s. i guess when the recession came along they were forced to move in together 678 now they like each other, i guess they would say they're happily married. but now they have split their small new york city apartment into halves. >> yeah. here's the thing -- what about the idea of separate plateses to live? before we get to the house. do you think -- like you live in one apartment with your stuff, and he lives in an apartment with his stuff. >> yes. >> how would that work? >> that's what frank and i did
10:08am
when we first got together and then when we got married, we sold everything. i think when you're young and raising children together and stuff, you need to be there. >> if you don't have kids -- i think it's a nice idea. >> it's almost like look, these guys have separate bedrooms with their doors closed. >> well, he doesn't have a bedroom, hoda, he sleeps on a pull-out couch. and they keep their doors closed. you're not allowed to go in unless you knock. except on weekends. >> the only thing i think is really important for a happy relationship, what do i know -- separate bathrooms. separate bathrooms, if you can. because the idea, that is so important, just to have your stuff, you can shut your door -- there's something i like about the separate bathrooms. you and frank share. >> for years, in our house before we did an addition we had separate bathrooms. and then we built on the bathroom that we built on, it's just, it takes, it's this crazy views from every direction of water. it's just so beautiful and the
10:09am
tub that i brought from los angeles. so now i said just to have that bathroom. we'll share. we'll share. but -- >> does it get annoying? >> frank's watching, what am i going to say? i love you! no, no. you know, we're very mindful of each other. >> and you're always wiping things up. >> but we're 25 years married now, you know. i listened to colbie's cd, it's all about falling in love and being in a brand-new relationship. and it's all just so fresh. >> you know what i love about her whole deal, though, is her boyfriend, first i noticed him i think in one of the videos. i didn't know the whole back-story that he and she worked together. >> for a couple of years. >> and it gave her music all this depth. >> no, colbie, she doesn't want to talk about it. we better figure out if she wants to talk about that. she doesn't look too happy. >> every year, somebody makes a wedding dress out of toilet paper, right? look at this. this is the seventh annual
